Nano One secures patent on high-energy NMC cathode powders

Nano One Materials has secured a US patent for its NMC cathode powders, which it says offer a proprietary means of making Li-ion batteries more durable, safer and cheaper. NMC cathodes are typically comprised of lithium, nickel, manganese and cobalt. Global battery makers are keen to limit the use of cobalt, which has a dodgy… Read more »

Canada funds Nano One’s Li-ion durability improvement research

The National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP) has granted Nano One’s “Coatings for High Durability Lithium-ion Battery Cathodes” project $349,000 in non-dilutive and non-repayable funds. The project is intended to study various coatings and dopants that can reduce or remove instabilities in cathode materials. Nano One intends to focus its resources… Read more »

Nano One says it can produce Li-ion materials faster and cheaper, wins $1.9-million investment

Canada’s Innovation, Science and Economic Development program plans to invest up to $1.9 million in Vancouver-based Nano One, which currently produces energy storage materials and a range of nanostructured composite materials. The funding will support a pilot plant that will simulate full-scale production of lithium-ion cathode materials and showcase Nano One’s processing technology. Some promising… Read more »
